The opening of the Royal Adelaide Hospital saw the establishment of the Creative Health Services, to drive the hospital’s best practice arts in health programs.
Creative Health aims to improve the quality and experience of healthcare through art and design, from living a healthy lifestyle, through to prevention, treatment, recovery and end of life care.
International clinical evidence suggests art programs, public art and surrounding environments have the ability to improve patients’ health and wellbeing.
To support the sustainability of the arts in health program, the Hospital Research Foundation has established the Centre for Creative Health charity with a dedicated fundraising mechanism and its own board.
The Centre for Creative Health Board seeks donations and oversees the flow of donations.
One hundred per cent of donations made to the Centre are directed through The Hospital Research Foundation to the arts, design and creative health programs and projects to benefit patients, families and staff.
